“I get it—trust me, I love blink and it’s given me everything in my life,” DeLonge told Kerrang!. “And, you know, I plan on doing it in the future. But right now there’s just no way—I have way too much going on because Angels & Airwaves is a part of To The Stars, and that’s why it works.”

The rumors were fueled even more after fans found out that DeLonge had followed both Mark Hoppus and Travis Barker on Instagram.

The follows come after Hoppus was dared to comment on DeLonge’s recent Instagram post, “I love you, and always will,” in a Twitter Q&A.

Now, in an interview with 91X San Diego, Tom has addressed the idea of rejoining blink even further.

“It hit the press last week I think that–yes everybody–I will play with blink again. That’s the whole plan. I talk to Travis all the time, and I talked to Mark just the other day and we’re always discussing what makes sense and when.”

He adds, “there’s creative differences in what I do, and what my brothers in blink do. We like different things, and we like different music–but we’re still good friends and we still support each other.”

You can watch the full interview below.

We’ll be watching, waiting for this reunion to happen.

Whitney is your definition of pop punk trash. If she's not jamming to State Champs or Grayscale, then she's probably out enjoying the finer things or working a show for Fearless Records as a Street Team Leader. She's a realist and an optimist, calling the city of Columbus her home. A huge fan of naps, Whitney often falls asleep in a city that doesn't. She's not hard to please, finding joy in discovering new bands or playing Everlong on the late night radio. Working at Alt Press and breaking ground in the music scene have always been a dream of hers, telling herself at an early age she was down for losing it all to make that happen! Now the weekend writer at AP, Whitney is prepared to be noticed and eager to contribute to the scene. If you catch her at a concert feel free to stick around, make small talk, or discuss her overuse of State Champs lyrics and song titles in her bio.
